how do you remove door panel?
(passenger side door)i got all the bottom screws out and i took the two screws out that are on the side and the screw in the middle. it seems like it is not coming off right by the lock and the handle. what else am i supposed to do to get it off? im taking it off to tighten my door handle to keep it from rattleing.

There is a screw behind the handle.

Here is the guide.

i tightened the two main bolts but it didnt do shit. looked at doing it like the guide said but it seemed to complicated since i couldnt really get back behind the handle to well to remove that stuff. i dont know what to do. maybe ill just shove something in there so it wont move so much.

It is really easy.

Use a phillips head screw driver (tape it, else it causes scratches) an push it above the handle between the little panel and de knob for closing the door and "brake" the little panel out.

In total there are 6 screws to remove.

Then when the screws are removed. There are still 4 pins that hold the panel down.

Will take pictures if you want.

It takes 5 minutes to remove.
